I've been going up here for over 25 years now. It's been through many changes since, but it's always felt like "home" to me. The park is beautiful, and despite budget cuts to the parks, it's always been clean. The store was a great addition...More

I have camped here since 2005. Every year. Sometimes twice a year. The rustic side has clean sites, vault toilets, an empty lake, and plenty of space between the sites. You also have access to the bathrooms on the modern side if you want to...More

The sites are fine enough and the bathrooms aren't too bad for primitive campers, but they don't monitor after hours AT ALL! The site next to us was incredibly loud, had no respect for others around them and couldn't care less. They literally went to...More

A friend from France is looking for a boys' camp to send his son to for 2 weeks. Is Interlochen something he could be interested in? His son is 14 years old.

It's not a camp, it is a park with camping facilities. Intrlochen school of arts is something that must be applied and accepted to, if that is what you meant. It's a fine arts academy that runs an amazing summer program.
Is there a lot of swimmers itch during the summer? We want to go there for 4 days with little kids and heard there was a summers itch a lot.
